    I was there December/January 1945/6 and it was a bit of a chilly time,especially if someone talked after lights out and we all finished up standing on the edge of the firewater tank but our hut did have the honour of no one leaving for home during the course. But I have never been so fit either before or after the 'experience'.

    #11 Yes Terry, the water tank was not good after midnight - and the water was putrid. Possibly as bad was the defaulter task of shovelling the coal stock from one storage space to the other - except this wasn't a night job. I missed both punishments, my only one was standing outside the Captain's door for several days when caught whistling. (What happened to whistling as one hears it no more?)

    Great Terry, you are one of the few I've noted as being on site and having been at Vindi ahead of me. (Deck May-Aug 1948. At least it was summer)

    Hi Dave.
    I attended the Vindi reunions in Sydney from 1995 until about 2010 when Terry Hales ran it. Then we went to NZ for five years, but remained a member, on coming back, we settled down here in Cooma too far to get to the meetings, but I am still a member of the association and get all the newsletters and magazines.
    Cheers Des

    The Vindi, what a wonderful place.
    You went there full of hope anticipation of wonderful times to come.

    You left there half starved, lighter than you started, with far less hair, a uniform that may if you were lucky have fitted part of you, but with the knowledge that great times lay ahead for you.

    You went in as a boy and came out as the future.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.
